5 out of 5 eggsTrouble at first

Pros: Cheap, Works, 5.1 DTS

Cons: Not really a con but when I first set this card up I was having trouble getting the optical out to send DTS 5.1 to my receiver. For some reason I was only getting stereo to my receiver through the optical. After playing around with my ffdshow audio decoder settings I finally got DTS to work. It took me quite some time to pinpoint what was wrong. Not the card but software configurations. I still can't seem to set-up the surround sound natively in the software provided though. It has a test for all the speakers but only the right and left front channels seem to work in this test. Might be a while before or if I figure this one out.

Other Thoughts: If you want optical connection with to a receiver than this will get it done. It is way cheaper than buying cables to run all of my separate channels of surround from my onboard sound card.

4 out of 5 eggsSounds Good....

Pros: The soundcard installs and works with Vista without a hitch and it fits even though my big graphics card takes up the PCI-E and part of another PCI slot. Sounds good through the Toslink cable.

Cons: My home audio receiver doesn't click over to 5.1 surround when you change the card to that setting. I know its not my home stereo because it clicks over to full surround just fine when I test it through Vista's control panel. The graphic interface of the program is rough, but thats just appearance. It may be something I'm not aware of, but with the high sample rate is set, itunes doesn't work.

Other Thoughts: Overall it does its job, but am disappointed that when watching movies on my PC i don't get true 5.1 surround.
